Pathway to Canada – Part 3

In my previous blog, I started discussing the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) and like I mentioned, the first step is to determine, what is called your National Occupational Code (NOC) after which you can search through the provinces and know where your occupation is needed, and you can apply to that province. You MUST have an Express Entry profile, even if you are going through the PNP route, because the PNP starts at the provincial level and ends at the Federal Level as it’s the Federal Government that issues the final decision. If you are accepted, you will be nominated and that nomination comes with 600 points added to your CRS score in the Express Entry pool, after which you are given an Invitation To Apply (ITA) to Canada.
There are over 70 different Provincial Programs with different requirements for each of them and so you will need to be sure you meet the eligibility requirements before applying to that province.
For example, Jane Doe is 45 years old and married with 2 children. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, while her husband holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. They have both written the English Language Exams and have evaluated their credentials. Jane Doe is the principal applicant and her score in the express entry pool is 386 and she has a brother who lives in Manitoba. Jane Doe heard about the Manitoba skilled worker overseas program which requires at least 6-months of work in an in-demand job, Language exams and the support of a relative who is a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident, resides in Manitoba and has lived for not less than a year, to act as a sponsor. Jane Doe applies to Manitoba province through this program as she meets the eligibility requirements, and she was accepted and issued a nomination, which adds 600 points to her 386 points, giving her 986 points. (Remember that the cut-off for the Express Entry and PNP draws could range from 490 and above) so with this new score, Jane Doe is issued an Invitation To Apply (ITA) to Canada.
Another example will be John Mike who studied master’s in applied sciences, in University of British Columbia, after completion of his studies. He had an express entry score of 397. He then applied to the British Columbia International Post-Graduate Program and because he meets all the requirements, he was given a nomination, making his score 997 and was issued an Invitation To Apply (ITA) to Canada. These are just 2 of the different PNP pathways available in Canada.
Looking to know if you qualify for any of these 70 different Provincial Programs? We are just a DM away.
